A New Meaning to the Phrase ‘Food for Thought’ (postscript… a long one =b)

Looking at my list of Baguio restaurants to try, I noticed that there were two establishments that escaped being placed in the Food for Thought ( a.k.a. think before you eat there) category blogs.  (“Heed my voice, sniveling, spineless worms of civilization.  Tremble at the roar of approaching terror!” ~ Anthony Bourdain joking in one of his No Reservations episodes.  Just thought it was the most appropriate line to put in here.  Let’s top it off with *maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh. =))

It Takes a Ketchup Food Community to Make a Happy Tummy

Or is it the other way around? ^^,

No matter.  But just so you know, before any of the other eating places at the Ketchup Food Community came to be, there was Happy Tummy.  A Thai restaurant opening for business at the most opportune time (when people became more receptive to Thai cuisine), they serve pad Thai, chicken pandan, fried tilapia in tamarind sauce, som tam salad, Thai iced tea and more.  What with the mega flavors that their offering of Thai dishes have, you can order up something as simple as eggplant salad and eat it viand-like with bagoong rice or maybe the more downplayed salty flavor rice – Thai rice.  A good and filling meal for a happy tummy.  (“,)  That’s what Race and I did the first time we visited this restaurant.  Hanging out in one of their dining tables in a hut, we had happy tummies in no time.

Dinelli Gourmet at Le Monet: “Damn You, Eggs Benedict”

Dinelli’s Gourmet has long been a fixture at the Camp John Hay Filling Station (beside Strawberries and Ice Cream).  I never really got around to visiting the place since I had so many other establishments on my list before it.  When the Le Monet Hotel was being built, I saw through their big wide windows that they had a beautiful chandelier and big comfy looking peach colored chairs in their restaurant.  I just had to bump it up my list just to experience it.  So I scoured the net for their information when I heard that they were open for business.  I found their details on Facebook and I made a reservation.  Just a few minutes later, I got the confirmation and so breakfast buffet at Dinelli’s was on.
